Module 2: Market Orientation
Analyzing Competition
No competition - single supplier of product
Oligopolistic competition - few large suppliers (detergent or aircraft industry)
o in industries that require very large investments in equipment,
technology and/or distribution (encourages mergers and acquisitions)
ocompete on price, product features, advertising and sales promotion.
Monopolistic competition many suppliers offering a variety of products, each
of which has a small, loyal market share (salad dressings, beauty salons,
bars)
oLots of product/service differentiation b/ rivals & price competition.
Perfect competition when many suppliers sell essentially the same product
oSupply and demand will control the price
oSuccess = Low cost production of a quality product and efficient
distribution
oType of market = type of company resources and company growth
objectives

have to be a visionary
indicators of a likely change in future sales, profits, and competitiveness:
oChanging brand mind-share: customer preferences often
foreshadows a change in market sales share.
oChanging brand voice-share: The changing share of advertising
dollars the brand has of the total dollars spent on advertising in the
market.
oChanging research and development (R&D) share: long-term
indicator of new product innovation and thus market share, important
measure of future competitiveness in many high technology markets.
five forces that shape competition:
o(1) current competitors,
o(2) the threat of new entrants,
o(3) the threat of new substitutes,
o(4) the bargaining power of distributors (or business-to-business
customers)
o(5) the bargaining power of suppliers - power reduces the profitability
of transactions with them
